Sperm/Embryo/Egg & Donation Agreements

Sperm/Embryo/Egg Donation

Other than the donation of gametes to a spouse under a doctor’s supervision, New York and New Jersey law is very limited in the protection afforded participants in this method of family building. Because of the lack of protection afforded by state law, people are advised to retain experienced legal counsel who can help to insure that the parties fully understand and consent to the legal ramifications of entering into a donation agreement.

Donation Agreements

Egg, Sperm and Embryo donation agreements provide an important protection for all participants in Collaborative Reproduction. Issues that should be addressed in an agreement include: parental rights, confidentiality, medical expenses, insurance, compensation, future contact, communication with the intended parents, the child or the donor. Rumbold & Seidelman has extensive experience drafting and reviewing donation agreements. We represent recipient intended parents as well as gamete and embryo donors.
